ABOUT > linguistics

Languages are neat! I'm a native English speaker & I'm dubiously conversational in Spanish. I also have some experience/familiarity with ASL, Japanese, Danish, Korean, Navajo, Zapotec and toki pona. I "specialize" (insofar as an undergrad can specialize...) in NLP, phonology and historical linguistics.
